Overview
The first cookbook ever to have been issued simultaneously in English, French, and Spanish is your entrée into the culinary mélange that is New Orleans. The authors have drawn extensively from their own connections to these cultures, in some cases unlocking nineteenth-century cooking secrets discovered in old, handwritten notes. They present what they consider to be the 119 best recipes created in the city. From drinks like the Sazerac and Café au Lait to entrées such as Red Beans and Rice and Crawfish Étouffée to desserts including Cherries Jubilee, Bananas Foster, and Pain Perdu, every recipe is world class. All recipes include metric measures.

Suzanne Ormond was a native of New Orleans and was well known in the public library system prior to her death in February 2006. She served on the New Orleans Public Library board of directors for nearly twenty years and the New Orleans Public Library Foundation for over a decade. In 1998, she was awarded the Mayor's Medal of Honor. She also served as the mistress of ceremonies at the centennial celebration of the New Orleans Public Library. In addition to being an active civic leader, Ormond had been a pottery craftswoman for many years and at one time owned her own pottery-manufacturing business. A widely recognized authority on the subject, Ormond became interested in Newcomb crafts when she was a student of the late Katherin Choi at the Newcomb Art School.
